WTF does UX Design Have to Do with Social Impact?

“A UX designer’s role is directly involved in the process of making a product useful, usable and enjoyable for its users.”

When you aren’t designing with inclusivity in mind, you’re failing. Designing experiences with a specific target market in mind is crucial for many products, but when you are working on products intended to have mass market appeal, that means all people. Let’s talk about learning how to see problems for users who aren’t exactly like us and about designing an inclusive experience for everyone and the ultimate impact that has on culture.

Participants will walk away with key insights and tools for how to see the world beyond their own experiences. Focusing on communicating and addressing the needs of their end product user in relation to identity and the way those social identities shape individual experiences.
